Running on aging equipment, the Sakhalin GRES-1 power station has been running below its nameplate capacity for years; it is planned to be shut down once the new Sakhalin GRES-2 power station is completed. After the new Sakhalin GRES-2 power stationstation was commissioned in November 2020 the plant's remaining four units were retired on Dec. 1, 2019.[3]
